Gutters matter

From the SMH:

As much as 85 per cent of new guttering installed on NSW homes is high-fronted, attached to a building's facia by a spring-clip system. This makes the entire guttering system non-compliant with building codes and Australian Standards because provision for continuous overflow does not exist.

Home owners may face huge repair costs in years to come, setting the stage for fights between insurers, builders and plumbers over who should foot the bill.

Continuous overflow? What's that? Are we expecting continuous rain in the future?
